Adopt-a-Hole at Shelton Springs
Shelton Springs was built with the commitment that volunteer labor would be used to develop and maintain the course. The Adopt-a-Hole Program is intended to empower and enable the people that benefit from the course to take ownership of the course and give it the maintenance it needs. As a participant, you will adopt – take ownership of – a selected hole on the course. Your basic objective is to make your hole better than everyone else’s.

Open to anyone, individuals or groups. In the event there is availability, more than one hole may be adopted. All participants are required to attend a one-hour orientation at the course before they get started to learn about what we can and can’t do.
At a minimum, maintain and improve your selected hole at Shelton Springs. The minimum requirement is keeping your hole in good playable condition with at least two trimmings during the growing season (May – September) and two fairway clearings/rakings during the winter season (November – March).
The adoption period is One Year, following the Calendar Year.
Examples of Improvements & Maintenance:
String trim or mow fairway.
Clear dead limbs/debris off of fairway.
Rake and remove fir cones.
Create trails through adjacent fairways and rough.
Spread beauty bark around the green and trails.
Spread 5/8" minus crushed rock around tee pads.
Plant flowers or trees.
Improve drainages and add/maintain waterbars.
Line the fairways and trails with downed trees/limbs or rocks.
Make artistic improvements and provide added character.
Bragging rights, obviously. In addition, we will install an adopt-a-hole sign with your name on it at the red tee pad of the hole so everyone knows who to high-five and say thanks to! (Sooooo... MCDG is still trying to figure out the adopt-a-hole signage, so for now, this is where you'll get your props!)
